I am neutral among all the fine Democrats contemplating a run for President. Truly.
In 2008, the Obama folks were all certain the DNC was in the tank for Clinton; the Clinton folks were all certain we were in the tank for Obama. Which suggested we did a pretty good job of remaining neutral. (It was actually easy, because both were such completely compelling choices. Even privately, in the voting booth, I was torn.)
That said, should Hillary win, she will enter the White House with an exceptional intellect; an extraordinary knowledge of the presidency; a track record of working across the aisle in the Senate; a deep knowledge of foreign affairs; working relationships with scores of her fellow world leaders; and policy positions that favor the 99%, while embracing science, diversity, and investment.
And as I read this profile of Robby Mook, 35, tapped to run her campaign, I’m thinking: you know what? She just might win.
